My wife and I just got back from Couples Negril. Loved it. Had a great time. Now we're planning to go to Ocho Rios in December and stay at either Tower Isle or Sans Souci. But the question is which one is more our style?
We loved the atmosphere at Couples Negril - for those of you who are familiar with that resort. We are in our early thirties and enjoy activity - though we're certainly not opposed to relaxing by the pool as well, so long as there are some younger people and a bit of action by the pool. We do not have a problem with a wide age range at the resort, so long as there are a fair number of people closer to our age.
We appreciate a bit more modern, newer look and feel to the resort, particularly with the rooms. Clean and classy is the style we go for. We spend more time around the pool as opposed to the beach so the condition/layout of the beach is not all that important to us.
We are certainly looking for some romance, but do not necessarily need the "private walks" or "little quite hideaways" that I've read so much about with Sans Souci.
We typically start our day with a workout in the gym so a decent fitness center is important.
We enjoy all inclusive resorts that have a greater variety of food offerings so we won't have to keep going to the same place every night. And of course the quality of the food is extremely important, being that it is an all inclusive.
As for nightlife, I understand that Jamaica is not Cancun or Vegas when it comes to partying at night, and that's fine. But we are looking for a resort that will have a decent variety of evening entertainment sufficient to keep us active, interested and entertained until at least midnight or so.
So please, can anyone help with this decision??? I've read hundreds of reviews for both resorts and it just makes the decision harder. What we really need is someone who has stayed at both resorts, and who can advise us as to which one better suits our style based upon the above criteria.
Anything anyone has to offer is greatly appreciated.
